Library Trends 31 (1) Summer 1982: Standards for Library and Information Services


Library Trends 31 (1) Summer 1982: Standards for Library and Information Services. Edited by Terry L. Weech.

In the decade since Felix Hirsch edited the October 1972 Library Trends on "Standards for Libraries," there has been considerable activity in the library and information science profession relating to the subject. Given the scope of these activities, it was decided to approach the subject of standards in two separate issues of Library Trends. This issue will concentrate on service or performance standards as related to specific types of libraries. The Fall 1982 issue of Library Trends will focus on technical and procedural standards that apply in many different library and information science settings, and will be edited by James E. Rush. There undoubtedly will be some overlap between the articles in the two issues, but the authors were asked to keep the focus of each issue in mind as they prepared their articles. It is the hope of the editors that these two issues of Library Trends will complement each other and provide a comprehensive view of developments and trends in standards relating to library and information science. It is hoped that this issue will provide the reader with a state-of-the-art report on library standards, and perhaps suggest some future trends in each of the respective areas covered.

Library Trends (ISSN 0024-2594) is an essential tool for librarians and educators alike. Each issue thoroughly explores a current topic of interest in professional librarianship and includes practical applications, thorough analyses, and literature reviews. The journal is published quarterly for the Graduate School of Library and Information Science by The Johns Hopkins University Press.
